And now toward its silicon -- swollen painful rate roller board or at all for. Me eat. Well we solved it -- On sports radio and WB. -- -- -- Yes yes it's that. Yes just momentary you and I I still and I have seen -- I don't know you're watching the matrix for the seventeenth time is -- kind of a homered assignment. So yeah now you can't leave. And that is that -- -- -- and it the great great city are a table tonight. -- rent a movie. Tonight my wife is going out so I should actually be home by myself some time. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- He has those red box things of that work him -- -- -- there -- no release yes it would have very limited selection. I'll I'll Netflix do you have that I do but I don't think that's even on there it would be streaming on Netflix it. You have to get the regular Netflix you'd have to order the dvd did it let's let's have our. -- are cut -- Tuesday night during a doubly baseball game the situation was bottom of the seventh which double as last inning the Fisher cats had runners on second and third two. Rock -- pitcher -- Perino tried to intentionally walk the batter instead throw wild pitch which scored the game winning run today. As of last Philippine side to run home run eighth 31 against booting it up put him on now. So -- -- -- That's -- has to us I liked the announcer he was like so restating his voice he's okay odd -- like. You're rattles easily I don't know. So the question is is there a worse way to lose a baseball game. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- I have a confession I went to bed. With a -- -- the end. Fifty. I was you know I was. I was eight I was eight I was awake. -- fifty that you went to bed that's really bizarre. Keep parents that they have to -- it says it. App -- I must throw that. Daisy -- That's you know -- -- they withdraw without his that you weren't around to actually watch the end the -- say it turned out to be a good thing not really I'm not a scarred by the rescue clowns. You should be noted it's not just that you're not nearly as hard as the rest of us know and I blame your parents. While. Another mother just made the show there. Reigning Wimbledon champion Marion Bartoli announced her retirement -- that got me thinking about athletes who went out on top. Which athlete went out the best. I got it. John Elway last football game when the Super Bowl only Atlanta Falcons. Throws for a public about three -- 36 yards in that game last football game -- played. Does that such as depressed me. And a quarter preventive Robinson evidently like. He would pick -- and to her I wouldn't matter at all not only so. And -- -- besides he chose he chose the hooker vs the super bright as -- -- yeah. Barry Sanders I don't know about the actual last game he played it but going out -- -- -- at that level of your careers of the for the next however many years. People talk about what it would be like if you came back and try to drag you out of retirement nobody overseas it would been around that nobody sees the version that could have been -- Sims is close to that which is weird because -- the the last few years that good for him with for years people talked about Phil Simms coming out of retirement and it never happened so those be two guys. -- -- -- Yeah I think Jordan had left the first time -- just went away. We've heard Jordan never come -- that's but that's meant that he went from the best retirement of the worst -- changing numbers changing teams right he should never getting into running a team so he literally went from potentially having the best of the best -- -- three straight you're done -- dabble in -- little politics in any way really in the memory of Michael Jordan I'm just -- it was still -- them on the highest pedestal -- and I like this one you don't like them now. Like he did it's 'cause he left on the table I don't care that you you don't want to win a title. I mean you wasn't a McDonald's fast you know it won't do much yet when I don't know if wasteful effort. He wasn't. An Arizona really forced the man forced to -- turning back terrorist idea that in time. And players are gonna just I don't know it feels so unfinished to me if you're gonna go out on top. The top implies you win at. Not just you were productive point it's not just artistic you went out on the top of his game. Yes I don't care for his own terms yes he when he did everything -- a lot of times in blunt option in the NFL's and other relief can affect the patriots. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Last night in Atlanta the Braves and Phillies took the field and so did a big brown bag. Is it that the bourse is animal to be afraid it is flying -- now now anyone who's ever -- any kinds of her robe with a -- knows they are scary as hell and even if they don't bite they have little razor sharp teeth that look like naked -- they move quicker than any animal in the world. You use edit your question then it's a flying -- a mouse in and of right off the scary it's -- -- put it more yeah rat. And you're putting wings on that things that it can cruise around anytime you take a scary animals and give it extra powers you got a problem like Eagles or it's the -- -- -- yeah things are every horror it's terrifying about about it. And then putting it in the water were not supposed to be anyway -- cease that you see that discovery Jim McDougal whenever things at it would hold hold that you are suitable to shallow seas where they have the DMZ snakes. I -- to turn it off it was a lot worse than any horror movie I've ever seen it's like in some remote Indonesian C. They have -- naics and their like hundreds of them all in one place. Petrified petrified I can look him. I -- I grew up in an old farmhouse with -- I hate that despite never the best thing ever did was moved to a new business -- a bad thing. -- I viewed them use it. Literally no you don't understand like I knew a lot about -- because they were part might like I hated them they would have like they've sonar. Babies don't know what they have babies a certain time a year and a Jew or something and and the mother -- -- -- out of her -- Brewster whatever you know so some of them would end up in my house just flying around like you're watching TV you know bat flies by you -- wanna when your -- test in the hunt when they knocked it down Butler that Discovery Channel and save those mounds and -- Pounds in the design -- yes at that moment the -- has to attack the second one that one out of that tastes delicious admitted why no. It's -- that group definitely. Fill up and I learned from the Discovery Channel whatever. The AT&T question of the day yesterday the Texas Rangers released Manny Ramirez how will you remember remaining. You can go first because this is going to be your ode to man I love Manny I always will remember -- in that -- against the angels arms raised high after -- -- home run. The bottom -- the bad as ever cracked when somebody and he just destroy them all I love Manny always remember the home runs I'll remember the member of jumping up on the walls operate arrived -- Jesus enters replica. I'll always remember pushing down old -- yeah I won't remember that stuff when I remember many forever I always think of him as as as a hitter just be in my favor right handed hitter. Taking so clean you know lead tonight cheated to get -- was that last how -- remember yeah I'll remember it's not like he hung on too long I mean he encompasses everything that's bad about a special right. He's an eagle testicle maniac who. Beats up on old men he cheated query is by taking drugs he -- hangs on too long and tries to play Minor League Baseball to -- like eighty. There's nothing to like about Manny Ramirez other than the fact that he helped your team. I was watching him play. Is that -- he was really on the wind was really fun are you actually that but there's accurately who's been more fun to watch and day to day basis they made Ramirez's replacement combined with a Ortiz walked and Ramirez and Ortiz he was like the single most fun player I've ever watched lately -- to the first thing that popped in my hands on manner -- one. -- and Jack McCormick down and do and I I don't know whether it's. It's become -- Internet rumor that's become back in my -- it. Is that one of the things that he did at the end apparently was taken craps on floors in the one -- is one -- -- I was on the team plane but suffered in his infancy when they were allowed to choose the songs. Got his citizenship for the morning guys to play and -- effort that's not true. Waving the flag I've heard all that whole thing how effective it up. For the sixth time yes. I don't remember and it doesn't like -- you in twenty years of age you're hero you're baseball here is your baseball hero -- -- -- you now is will you just talked about an hour I'd say that I said he would you like more than Manny. He's the most popular player -- ever wanted to do is definitely a candidate that was lost to Obama as I love watching it definitely they're like -- parents. I like watching them did you like watching and I am always in the model. -- -- like Eric -- I don't I'm on the record that I've heard you say that for sure when I'm all for home runs and excitement -- long ball over it's not just a -- -- long at all I hope gonna make the game longer -- like like it. It's not like you would just below where a -- who -- in fifteen minutes lower than Townsend and I do like where the -- by cup. All of inches. Ball's been flying out of the yard. Get rid of all the steroids at that point the game wolf faster -- be good to go baseball. Commissioner when he got to run it through territory for I guess what took two hours and the other actually doing the work if he's got this awful attitude and eight major he do in the triangulation with a compass in order to make sure that everything is exact. He's working out are staggering in theory to make sure that he's got the exact right time. Joseph Torre did -- -- I don't know about the city AT&T text line you can if you want in the 50 weight cutting off Johnny Damon is a good answers that the one you'll remember made -- there that's a good fun. -- you while 'cause you want everything that was in any active while the -- advantage and I was just a perfect -- he did nothing LT just stepped to the plate hit home runs drove -- -- went back to the dugout was perfect art of giving another one of many -- at all remember and -- I think you -- the airport in Cleveland in 2007. During the ALCS down 31 where Manny took all the pressure off his team by just saying. Met him yet talked all year right -- not talked one time anybody in the press that hires these are all there in the in the visitors clubhouse. I think it was the night after John Blake -- nearly injured people like the switch around Italy at like arms Lockhart had -- cameraman cancel -- with the mats. And they any spoken said if we lose we lose the big deal. And it went out the next night and tore the cover off the ball and a -- in the next. As you know winning an expert in road win in the series and what you want about me but it was all team I mean that's just an example I felt I can only -- team a team to a flawed guy there's no doubt many that's flawed and you have flawed liking. I really like to ask why I don't you have posters I mean this is I was borderline awkward I my guys Bo Jackson I have one guy that I'm not sure adequate but. Gretzky -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Awkward I had four guys as a kid that I love and it turns out to re of them apparently major major problems. My one guy who loved is accused the toll on a program -- for yet. Its report Ray -- was the one like in like still low that any sort of problem and that's. But the other you should talk about report I know there's no problem talking the way you -- and unfortunately he's not in the fourth -- and I believe me no I didn't have to gush about man. I did that was kind of talk and still only reason it was on it I gathered at that required it once he is said and we are and what they're talking about -- -- America -- -- my other government when I was a kid Roger Clemens humbly ask him more and Mike Tyson. Lawrence Taylor who like -- -- they probably guys like I can really pick them at like 88 where I was relieved that I know I have really bad taste -- in favor and half ago 00 boy what is on the young girl it you know it that's you can only ask. I interviewed -- -- maybe last year and the whole time it's like trying to think about myself the LT was so good. He was so he was the best player in the league all your guys are good known -- question on another property yet. And you know what like I still kind of love LT even knowing no he's got major major problems and I still love -- to love Manny. But I cannot stand Mike Tyson I cannot stand Roger. So I don't know why does not even and he can get Manny -- where I have no problem you still liking because to me he doesn't. Niger he has issues he's -- while he's I mean if the things that he's accused of her true. He's pretty bad issues at some pretty bad stuff issues and I was Kidd was accused of the same stuff that's the -- yet LT junior the exact same property that just proves it's like imbalance doesn't passed on my generation generation doesn't. -- -- -- -- -- What's up man. Right. Out. -- -- All right while Pat Tillman. Some interest in one -- that the only different but a different perspective now they're the first two were a little before my time so I apologize and I I don't remember watching those guys like that JFK was definitely a president that went out on top. -- -- -- That's a totally different spin on the question then was clearly intend it to heart may be the -- -- on -- and I just like he was really great for the first two and a half -- I mean obviously people Pakistan's drop them like about the UN.
